If a Dodge Viper will do the trick, what wouldn’t?

I learned to drive stick on a tractor like ‘80s Volvo station wagon. Jalopnik alum Doug DeMuro taught a friend the trick on an old V10 Dodge Viper, pretty much the standard bearer “a car that is difficult to drive.”

If somebody can learn to drive stick on a car that doesn’t even make it through a single day without breaking down, what’s stopping you?
